Decision To Cancel NASA
Seismic-Tracking Radar Satellite
Was Made Top-Down

March 28, 2011 (EIRNS)—This release was issued today by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee (LPAC).

According to a senior U.S. intelligence official, the decision by President Obama to cancel the DESDynI LIDAR and radar satellites, that would have tracked earthquake and volcanic activities from space, was not the work of some accountant hack at the Office of Management and Budget. The issue was studied by the President's top science advisor, Dr. John Holdren, and it was the President's science advisory board that recommended that the program be scrapped, according to the source, who closely tracks these issues. Holden, it should be recalled, co-authored the book, Ecoscience, with genocidalists Paul and Anne Ehrlich in 1977, which called for a "Planetary Regime" to ration resources and impose population control, as well as an essay in 1995 calling for a "world of zero net physical growth" and the limiting of population.

The source further warned that, despite growing evidence that the Pacific Coast of the United States is facing major seismic eruptions at any time in the next several years, there is no mobilization of resources and "no preparedness." "The response is bureaucratic and gradual. There is certainly not a mobilization, even in California, where there is a higher level of preparedness," he emphasized.
